DPA Microphones 4017B-R overview

  • 1Description

The 4017B-R Shotgun Microphone from DPA includes the Rycote windjammer, windshield, suspension mount, XLR holder and brush for complete protection against wind noise during field recording. The professional and versatile 4017B microphone is designed for demanding sound capturing in film, video, sound reinforcement and even music recording.

The supercardioid, lobe-shaped polar pattern is coupled with excellent off-axis signal rejection for a focused pickup, enhanced range and minimal noise. The condenser capsule uses a high voltage pre-polarized back plate, endowing the shotgun with high output as well as wide dynamics, extremely low noise and distortion specifications.

The 4017B's frequency response, dynamic range, and signal-to-noise ratio result in pristine, transparent signal reproduction. Two onboard filters eliminate noise and artifacts with a 4 dB shelf at 8 kHz and a first-order bass roll-off below 120 Hz. The short, lightweight profile of the 4017B make it a suitable choice for both indoor and outdoor production with boompoles, handheld shock-mounts, etc.

    DPA Microphones 4017B-R reviews

    4017B-R Shotgun Microphone with Rycote Windshield is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Purchase! I've been using the 4017B for SFX and foley recording for a couple of months now. My experience so far - Pros - Clean, neutral sound - Low self noise - Seems to handle high SPLs gracefully despite being the weakest mmp preamp in this respect - Small & lightweight rig - Interchangeable preamp series can be used in modular fashion with other capsules or switched out for compact or higher SPL tolerance models depending on your needs) Cons - Not the most rejectional shotgun I've ever used (perfectly decent though depending on the application) - There are longer shotguns out there with more throw (CMIT or 8070 for example)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from exceptional microphone I bought this as a serious upgrade from a Rode NTG3 microphone, which had been my main shotgun mic for 4 years of sound recording. My biggest complaint with that mic was that when listening to cuts made from different angles, you could hear a noticeable difference in sound quality because of the angle. If you're not spot on the actor/actress, it's not very forgiving. With the DPA it acts more like a Schoeps in that it's focused on the subject, but sounds off axis are not as drastically eliminated as with the Rode, which will make it easier in post to match up shots. I used this on a full day shoot last week, for the first time, and was greatly impressed with the quality of sound. It was very focused while recording interviews in an incredibly noisy construction environment. I normally wouldn't use a shotgun mic in an interior setting, but in this case, the ceilings were quite high and with all the ambient noise, it really was a better choice than my normal interior mic (Schoeps CMC641). I haven't used it in a humid environment yet, so I'm not sure how it'll handle that compared to the Rode mic, but for the build quality, I should think it could handle it just fine. It's certainly not in everyone's price range, but if you can afford it, I would recommend it. Also, DPA's website and service are very helpful. Lots of great information on there.
